The blind isn’t seeing?
That’s okay, as long as he sees God’s grace in his life
The lame isn’t walking?
That’s okay, as long as he walks with God in his daily life
The deaf isn’t hearing?
That’s okay, as long as he hears God’s words in his heart and obeys them
The dumb isn’t speaking?
That’s okay, as long as his life speaks God’s truth that leads people to God
The sick isn’t healed?
That’s okay, as long as his relationship with God is healed and thus saved his soul
Never limit God to work only in big and miraculous things
Because while He may not provide the things that you think you need now
He does prepare for the things you’ll absolutely need in the eternity
And in His time, you’ll know and be grateful for what He did for you
Always be grateful for who He is,
He, who gave up His life so you can live,
He, who accepts you as you are,
He, who loves you so much

I just can’t resist not to write and share my wonderful experience of God’s surprising way to work in my life. Too many surprises to be counted that I’ve received from God. Let me share the newest one…
I’m currently in Singapore for a three-weeks-visit, doing work in a Christian ministry. And this is my second week ongoing…
This happened yesterday, a day before Singapore National Day, which is a holiday here. I was planning where I would go on the National Day holiday when my office mate said that there would be a guest, who is the speaker of this coming Friday Youth Bible Conference, that would come and stay at the same place as mine (They provide me a guest house).
It didn’t end there. She said that the guest would come to a practice session tomorrow morning (which is today) which she supposed to accompany him, and there’s possibility for me to be asked to accompany him as well. And so I stopped planning, had already found something to do on the holiday, and that’s good!
At night, my other Indonesia office mate who also on visit and stays at the same place as me, invited me to join him and some other office mates to go to a mangrove garden, enjoy nature, tomorrow morning. Already having something to do tomorrow, which is still a possibility, I can’t promise to join him, though I would like to join since I never come there before. It should be an interesting adventure.
Then, late at night, the guest came. He is a friendly guy, came from US. We talked on some topics. Then I realized that he has yet to be given a key, so I assumed I have to stay and open the door for him tomorrow, and maybe, go with him to the practice session. So I said to my friend that I wouldn’t be able to join him (and he kindly left some curry puffs for my breakfast, thanks mate :D).
Don’t get me wrong. I would be happy to go with the guest, to introduce the good of Singapore that I just discovered, to come and experience practice session, to have lunch together :P, to share with him. That’s just another exciting plan for me!
Night was over, and the day comes… So, it’s today, the first national holiday I experienced in Singapore!
My Lord, should I be hurt to learn a lesson? If I should, I’ll let You hurt me to give me a lesson…
Lord, thanks for every lesson you give to me (which sometimes hurts me)… I love You. Thanks for every happiness and sorrow in my life that You’ve given. Not easy to say this, but You’ve given me enough strength to say this.
Thanks for everything, Lord… (esp. for Your redemption, that makes me speechless… Nothing can pay Your love for me).
